Default Oh no, another Floridian...no Two!

Very glad to have found this forum. My wife, Laura, and myself, Joe are new to camping, RV's, and Class B's. We recently purchased a 2007 Roadtrek 190 Popular. Our choice had a lot to do with the fact that we plan to tow our small aircraft with us, so we won't have the ability to have a Toad. So much to learn and this looks like a very good resource. We have journeyed to our side yard so far and the trip was a success. We're hoping to visit Lake Griffin State in the near future as our first real shake down. Stand by for the HELP posts.

Welcome to the forum GyroJoe!

The Roadtrek 190 Popular should serve you well.

Thanks, but I just remember the position I was in when I joined (not that long ago). Knew very little about my rv and yet found so many on this forum willing to help. Just want others to feel as welcomed as I was.

I had the same problem as many others new rv owners. All local dealers were expensive. Many were either backed up for months or lairs and crooks. I had a $350 run-in with the latter and decided I could do it better and cheaper myself. Have been gratified what I've been able to do with my meager skills, the advice on this forum, and youtube of course.

Aw, I thought you really meant "Greater". I was humbled you thought of me that way, but now I'm even more humbled to discover it was only a spelling error.

Enjoy your 190. We had a 2007 Popular 190 for 10 years great class B. You don't happen to have mine which I traded in for a 2017 RT CS.

No steve. Actually mine is a versatile, but I could not find how to edit a post. I bought it from the original owners.
